Creative Perfumer and Director for Olfiction, Pia became a published writer at the age of 9 and after landing a fragrance and cosmetics role in her teens, has worked in almost all areas of the industry: sales, marketing, training, instructional design, retail support, product development, quality control and perfumery.
The twin passions of writing and fragrance have shaped Pia’s life and career. She has a uniquely broad insight into how fragranced products end up on the market; who makes this happen – and how people shop for fragrance.
She has worked as a junior perfumer for a global cosmetics brand, a perfumer and technical manager for a fragrance supplier, and perfumer & training manager for a fragrance industry consultancy. Pia contributes to many publications and media, including the trade magazine Perfumer & Flavorist, and BBC. She is a council member of the British Society of Perfumers.
